Integrating the iPod Touch in K-12 Education: Visions and Vices

Computers in the Schools Volume 27, Number 2, ISSN 0738-0569


Advocates of ubiquitous computing have long been documenting classroom benefits of one-to-one ratios of students to handheld or laptop computers. The recent sophisticated capabilities of the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad have encouraged further speculation on exactly how K-12 teaching and learning might be energized by such devices. This paper summarizes the research-to-date on mobile learning for K-12 students, and then delineates specific features and applications available on the iPod Touch that might impact student learning across the curricula. Finally, caveats are offered regarding the introduction and assimilation of these handheld computers into K-12 schools. (Contains 3 tables.)
